Jenny Flies Again

Jenny Flies Again

One of the most famous stamps ever to be inadvertently released by the Postal Service is making a comeback later on this year.

The 24-cent Curtis Jenny stamp is being re-issued in a more modern denomination of $2. Besides the higher postage price, the new version of the stamp will mirror the original. The new issue should spark interest with collectors who have always wanted to own one of the most widely sought after stamps in the world.

A preliminary version of the stamp design was unveiled by Director of the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, Allen Kane, and USPS Director of Stamp Services and Corporate Licensing, Susan McGowan, on January 18, 2013.

The stamp will be available for purchase on September 22.

Do you think the re-release of the inverted Jenny stamp will be the most desirable stamp in 2013?

    It’s a cool stamp, but I’d rather have one of the originals. What are they worth, a million bucks now?
